Great memories are associated with these cookies. Long ago I remember the “bread van” passing and I spent $1.00 (now, I can only imagine the price!). It has the soft texture of a cake but the appearance of a cookie and it’s topped with a lot of sugar! Some places sold a big and thick cookie, while others offered a thin version. I personally loved the thicker version. So here is a simple cookie recipe to bring back some good old memories.
Hope you enjoy!
4 C Cuisine All-purpose flour
1 C Granulated Sugar
1 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Baking soda
½ tsp Salt
1 C Cuisine Full cream milk
½ C Butter (melted)
Additional (Top of cookie)
¼ C Cuisine Full cream milk
½ C Granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Microwave butter in a bowl and mix in the sugar while it’s warm. Note: mix well dissolving the sugar.
Add milk to the butter mixture. Stir well.
In another bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and grated nutmeg.
Mix dry ingredients into wet and fold until a dough has been formed. Note: it should be a soft formed dough. If sticky add a little extra flour and incorporate.
Transfer onto a floured work surface and knead the dough for 2 minutes until smooth.
Roll out the dough into a 2” thick rectangle.
Using a cutter, cut the dough until all the dough has been used. Note: any size cutter can be used. If you prefer a thinner cookie roll it out to 1” thick.
Place onto a lined baking tray and brush with milk. Sprinkle sugar on the top and bake for 12 minutes. Note: the base of the cookie should be lightly browned. The top should be baked but soft.
